Movie Pass

Concerning news from the entertainment world this week: MoviePass, a movie ticket subscription service, recently confirmed that it may have exposed sensitive user information, including tens of thousands of credit card numbers.

Both MoviePass customer cards (issued by Mastercard) and personal credit card information may have been affected.

Here’s what MoviePass chief executive Mitch Lowe had to say about the incident:

“MoviePass recently discovered a security vulnerability that may have exposed customer records. After discovering the vulnerability, we immediately secured our systems to prevent further exposure and to mitigate the potential impact of this incident. MoviePass takes this incident seriously and is dedicated to protecting our customers’ information. We are working diligently to investigate the scope of this incident and its potential impact on our customers. Once we gain a full understanding of the incident, we will promptly notify any affected subscribers and the appropriate regulators or law enforcement.”

This is not the first major issue to plague MoviePass since it hit mainstream audiences with its too-good-to-be-true pricing last year. The company quickly grew its subscribers from 1.5 million to 2 million customers in less than a month but then ceased operations after running out of money. MoviePass now says it has restored service to “a substantial number of our current subscribers,” and anyone wishing to subscribe now may join a waitlist.

Thanks, Benjamin!

    I was always unsure of this company. There prices kept changing and also the amount of movies you were allowed to see. You know the saying, if its to good to be true it must be.

    After my card number was stolen a year or 2 ago I got set up to get texts whenever a purchase is made. I would know right away if it was stolen again!

    I did join MoviePass pretty shortly after they dropped the price to 10$ a month, and man was it GREAT that first year! That was the first time I had seen EVERY film nominated for ALL the award shows. Then things started going south; I was lucky for the next few months, as I was in Chicago and the 3 closest theaters to me were ‘e-ticketing’ theaters, so I still had no restrictions on which films I could see and I could book them online to boot! But, when they got rid of that option, I saw what all the fuss was about! Not able to see any movies for days and weeks at a time! I quit after 1 month of THAT BS. (Successfully!)
    (There were horror stories online).

      We loved Movie pass as well for the first year!! Saw TONS of movies and combined with our theater’s $7.50 popcorn bucket and large soda, it was an amazing deal. And then it all went south. It was great while it lasted though.
